The Variations Amongst the IBM ThinkPad T400 & R400

The ThinkPad T400 and R400 run on the Windows Vista operating system or the Professional Edition of Vista’s immediate predecessor, XP. The processor is usually a Core 2 Duo, which is the dual-core (two-processor-unit) version of Intel Corporation’s top-level brand. The processing speed range is
among 2.26 and 2.8 gigahertz (GHz). Some R400s, however, come with the slower single-core Intel Celeron chip instead, with a processing speed range of 2 to 2.16 GHz.

Using their Serial ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment) interfaces, the ThinkPad T400 and R400 have three available types of hard disk drives for data storage: the 80/160/250/320 GB drive with a spinning speed of 5,400 revolutions per minute (rpm), the 160 GB drive at 7,200 rpm and the 200 GB drive at 7,200 rpm and with full disk encryption. The optical drive is usually a CD/DVD-ROM combo, DVD burner or Blu-ray player. Customers can have up to eight GB of system memory, using the third-generational synchronous dynamic random access memory architecture (DDR3 SDRAM).

In terms of wireless connectivity, the ThinkPad T400 and R400 adhere to the Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100 or 5300 standard, as well as possessing Bluetooth capability. Each also has a fax/data modem and Intel Gigabit Ethernet.
The T400’s and R400’s ports include three USB 2.0 ports for data; RJ-11 and RJ-45 for the modem and Ethernet, respectively; a VGA connector; and headphone/line-out and microphone/line-in jacks. The notebooks also have slots for PC cards, MultiMediaCards and ExpressCards.

The T400 and R400 have the ThinkPad’s distinctive lunchbox shape. However, while the T400 has a 13-inch screen, that of the R400 is slightly larger at approximately 14 inches. The computers’ displays can support up to 1,440 by 900 pixels in resolution, aided by their integrated Intel graphics controllers. Also included with each is an integrated Web camera.
